Dear friends of Coro Lux,

We are very much looking forward to our 5th season! In a few short years Coro Lux has grown to be one of the top choruses in the state.

This season’s highlights include three performances with the New Mexico Philharmonic: Vivaldi’s Gloria in October, Handel’s Messiah in December and my own Requiem for chorus and orchestra in April. In addition we will reprise Johnson’s Considering Matthew Shepard— a piece which proved so popular last April we’re taking the unprecedented step of bringing it back into our new season.

Coro Lux will perform twice in Santa Fe this season, thus expanding our profile in the state capitol.  Beyond this, we’ll perform Rutter’s Magnificat in December and celebrate the 5th anniversary of our annual spring pops concert, once again at the beautiful outdoor patio of the Canteen Brewhouse.

Our unofficial motto is to “do good while we’re doing well.” This season our efforts will benefit those who struggle with issues related to vision. However, not only do we hope to help those with problems with their eyesight. We also hope that being present for live, glorious music will open up new vistas of beauty and understanding among our audiences. Please join us!

Upcoming Events

Dear friends of Coro Lux

It will come as no surprise but, nevertheless, this notice officially cancels the remainder of our spring season.

The New Mexico Philharmonic is committed to rescheduling our performance of the Requiem. That date has yet to be set.

In regard to the May concerts by the Chamber Chorus at the Canteen Brewhouse those, too, may be rescheduled, perhaps even in the summer. Of course, we need to see what the situation dictates as the coming months unfold.

I’m disappointed, as I know many of you are, but safety must come first.

Blessings and good health to you all.
